The change between summer time and fall brings about colours which can be subsequent to none when it comes to magnificence. It additionally means cooler temperatures. For Swami, meaning stoking the wooden burner to deliver on the warmth to the home.
Swami isn’t the one one in want of warmth. Some space groups are preventing a case of the chills; they want one large blast to get them headed in the best course. Let’s see if the warmth will carry Swami this week.
GAYLORD (0-2) at ALPENA (0-2)–7 p.m.–Friday–For the second straight week, Alpena had loads of motivation, however momentum shifted shortly when the sport started.
Cadillac ran the Wildcats to dying in week one, whereas Traverse Metropolis West nickeled-and-dimed Alpena via the air and on the bottom. The top outcome was a lopsided loss to the Titans. The Wildcats are in want of offense shortly. The Wildcats appeared like they had been in place to do it, however simply weren’t capable of come profitable third down performs, to maintain the drives going.
Charlie Williams and Jason Smolinski get the majority of the carries, however they should get a step on protection to make the operating sport efficient. Quarterback Ryan Voltz has not been in sync along with his receivers. However the All-Realizing-One believes that may come and when it does, it’ll full the offense, making the Wildcats a workforce to be reckoned with.
Gaylord additionally has nothing to point out for 2 weeks of play, dropping video games to Petoskey and Cadillac. The Blue Devils seem like heading in the right direction with their offense. Gavin Freeman, Quinn Schultz and Corey Deer will give the Wildcats one other dose of the run. They should get the protection on the identical web page.
Swami sees this sport taking place to the wire. Neither workforce has a definite benefit. It can come right down to who blinks first, or makes a mistake.

ATLANTA (1-1) at MIO (0-2)–7 p.m.–Friday –Atlanta and Mio seem to have swapped locations from final season. Atlanta’s bought a win and Mio is on the backside of the standings.
The Thunderbolts haven’t performed a creampuff schedule so far, together with a sport with Whittemore-Prescott final week. After dropping some key gamers, the Thunderbolts are holding their very own and can spherical into form within the coming weeks. The protection has been attacked from each angle and the teaching workers is in search of methods to compete equally with Atlanta.
The operating sport bought the Huskies nowhere towards Merrill within the first half final week, so that they went to the air. Quarterback Hint Juergens discovered quite a lot of receivers open from Ethan Byrne, Trenton Whitt, and Steven Bilsky, however there was simply an excessive amount of floor to make as much as pull out victory.

TAWAS (0-2) at OSCODA (2-0)–7 p.m.–Friday–A battle of two groups which can be going in several instructions. Tawas is coming off a 35-0 shutout loss to Johannesburg-Lewiston, however has proven enchancment. Swami has insights into the Braves offense, which is predominately pass-oriented. Quarterback Justin Ulman had a pair of 12-yard completions, which needed to Braves on the transfer, which turned out to be the farthest they bought into Cardinal territory. Ulman would end 9 of 15, with 4 completions going to Sam Weiss. The protection of the Braves was caught on its heels all through the sport, because the Cardinals made good on all 5 possessions within the first half.
Oscoda moved the ball with ease for one more 50- level sport towards Rogers Metropolis. Owen Franklin has not missed a beat in transferring from huge receiver to quarterback. Franklin saved the protection on the transfer, dashing for 110 yards and three touchdowns, then went to the air for one more 132 yards and a single rating.
Swami has to say if the protection can cease Franklin, the opposition would have likelihood for a win. The Owls can flip to different weapons that they haven’t needed to resort to to date. The Owls have the luxurious of being a well-oiled machine, each on the offensive aspect and defensively. The All-Realizing-One feels the Braves’ protection can be on subject too lengthy, leading to one other large win for the Owls.
Swami Sez: Oscoda 56, Tawas 0.
ALCONA (0-2) at ROGERS CITY (1-1)–7 p.m.–Friday–Can sport two between Alcona and Rogers Metropolis produce the identical thrills as the primary? The Tigers noticed their lead slip away with a late fourth quarter landing; game-winning move from Isaac Hein to Matt Newhouse occurred as time ran out. It was a sport that the Hurons want to reproduce, whereas the Tigers are hoping to return the favor.
Alcona’s offense scored 18 factors towards Marlette final week, however it was a wrestle to get these. Zach Stephenson accounted for 2 scores, and Gavin Walker had the opposite landing on the bottom. General, the Tiger protection did a yeoman’s job. Walker led the best way with 12 tackles, two interceptions and two fumble recoveries, Stephenson added 10 tackles. Swami says it was the little issues that Marlette did to steer it to victory.
Rogers Metropolis’s sport towards Oscoda was a very totally different story. The Hurons’ offense was utterly shut down. Hein had a tough evening with solely 37 passing yards. The bottom was utterly closed down with solely 27 yards.
Swami has to ask, which workforce will rebound? The Tigers with a pair 18-point performances and in search of a win or the Hurons being lit up by Oscoda?
